Just back from the Latitude Festival where I had a great time. Hats off to everyone at Lavish who looked after us over the four days. I exhibited new paintings in the woods, painted sheep and watched great sets from !!!, Fever Ray, Nick Cave, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, just to name a few. A big thanks to 'The Sonic manipulator'  www.sonicmanipulator.com  who was the star of the festival, playing each night in my space in the forest, what a intergalactic hero! Thanks also to James Rueben who collaborated on some paintings with me, and guided my through the latitude mayhem! Here's to next year.
